½ -1 tsp Himalayan salt
½ cup water (drizzle in at end to make caramel consistency)

SUPER SALTED CARAMEL
Mix in a good blender for about 5 minutes.
Stop and scrape down the sides.
Add some additional salt or maple syrup to taste.
Spread around 2cm thick on top of the base. (Or eat it on its own! So good!)
You can use this caramel mixture for many recipes (caramel filled chocolate / caramel nice cream / caramel Popsicle)
Melt the cacao butter in a double boiler.
Whilst stirring the cacao butter slowly add the maple syrup and cacao powder.
Keep mixing until you get the correct consistency (should coat the back of a spoon evenly).
